REPORT: Steve Yzerman interested in job other than Red Wings

It’s just a matter of time before news breaks that Steve Yzerman is returning to the Detroit Red Wings, right?

Well, not so fast.

According to a report from the New York Post, Yzerman has interest in going to the New York Rangers.

From New York Post:

Steve Yzerman, likely the hottest pending free agen in hockey, is amenable to being wooed by the Rangers to succeed Glen Sather as team president, multiple sources with knowledge of his thinking have told The Post.

Now hold on, this does not mean that a deal is done. It is unknown whether the Blueshirts have yet asked for and received permission from Tampa Bay to speak to Yzerman, who is serving the final year of his contract as an adviser to the owner after having stepped down last September as general manager. Such a request, if not yet made, will be forthcoming.

Nation, are you buying this as a possibility for Yzerman it will he return home to Detroit?
